Russia is blocking encrypted email startup Skiff

Share via:

The Russian government has blocked another encrypted email provider, according to a Russian digital rights organization and the email provider.

Roskomsvoboda, which describes itself as “the first Russian public organisation active in the field of protecting digital rights and expanding digital opportunities,” reported last Wednesday that an unknown Russian state organisation ordered the blockage of Skiff, an email and cloud service provider founded last year. Skiff’s CEO Andrew Milich has since shared evidence of the block with TechCrunch. The block against Skiff comes three years after Russia blocked similar email encrypted services Proton Mail and Tutanota, demonstrating that President Vladimir Putin’s regime is firmly against encrypted communication services that allow its citizens to conduct more secure conversations.
